I bought my Rosslare a couple of years ago and it's drilled correctly and the stem fits just fine. I paid 125.00 for it at the time. From what I can tell, the 100.00 and below pipes seem to be the ones with the problems. If this is the case, when did the problems start to surface? I wanted to get a 100.00 Pete, but now I'm seriously considering a 70.00 Savinelli. Any problems with the lower-end Savs?
Smoking a pipe is true relaxation...everything else is too much like work.
